Pours a rich amber and is semi clear with no lasting head. Smell is toasty and raisin like with tart malt. Semi sweet and nicely flavored with a touch of alcohol showing, but 10% is still hidden well. Some caramel sweetness comes out as well. Medium bodied and pretty nice for the style, I thought.
On tap at the Bulldog NE. Pours a gorgeous ruby red with a thin, lacy white head. Aroma is full and malty, with loads of malt followed by lesser hints of dark fruit, apples, and cherries. Body is creamy and full, with an opening taste of malt, dark fruit, figs, and currants giving way to a long finish of warming alcohol and molasses. Certainly the mellowest of the quads I’ve ever had, though a little lacking in the big flavors as well. gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2008

Pours dark coppery with tawny hints, aroma of round malts, toffee, prunes, and dried pears, strong rounded malty flavours of the palate, which seemed to me better when the beer was colder, and faded with time. Very good.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 75cl Bottle. Pours a warm bronze, with short living off-cream head. Full bodied yeast to the nose, and honey, caramel and yeast on the palate, with very reassuring mouthfeel. Well struck balance with the alcohol playing an expertly complementary role. Great quadruple. roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours clear red brown orange with some bubbly white head. Aroma is caramel apricot syrup. Flavor is creamy fruit, especially peaches. Heavy mouthfeel and lots of malt. texasbartender (160) - Sugarland, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2008
The beer pours a cooper amber with a fine white head. There are small sediments floating in the beer that is also full of carbonation. The nose is a rich yeasty mix of berries and caramel there is also a clear underpinning of alcohol. The taste is a big mix of alcohol, caramel and yeast. As highly carbonated as the beer looked I was expecting it to have more of a bite but it is a smooth heady alcohol forward brew. AcctError76287 (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2008
bottle. Konings Hoeven quad. Pours a dark ruddy amber color, nice inch thick foamy head. Aromas of booze, apples and raisins. Heavy carbonation is immediately noticeable. Flavors of fruit- more from the nose, the apples, raisins... some notes of plums and figs. Plenty of booze heat in the flavor, some heavy malt flavors to balance it, though still on the hot side.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange with a huge creamy off-white head that left good lacing. Sweet fruity aroma with light alcohol present. Flavor also finds sweet fruits with a malt and yeasty backing. Medium body with a warming alcohol feeling.
